Flamingo Fridays: A Pop of Paradise Welcome

I’m surrounded by my favourite Big Pink Birds, but I have been very lax about posting them online.  I wasn’t kidding when I said that my time in January was completely eaten by skating.  This particular Pop of Paradise Welcome card was made specifically for a friend of mine who decided to re-sign as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

You may remember from past posts that I don’t like stamped flamingo images that are solid pink.  Before stamping this cute bird I inked the image up using my Flirty Flamingo inkpad, and then added the black to its beak and legs with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

Black is the perfect accent for this card because it matches the bird’s beak!  What a lovely bird.  I pulled the sentiment from the At Home with You set, and it fits perfectly inside of the Classic Label Punch.

I couldn’t possibly send the card without adding a flamingo to the inside of the card.
